Todd Harwell

Adjunct Faculty

I’m thrilled to be joining the Lewis & Clark community as an Adjunct Faculty member and leading a lab section of ENVS 220 for the Spring 2022 semester. I am an interdisciplinary environmental social scientist that loves being able to combine both quantitative and qualitative methods to explore how individuals and communities relate to their environments and engage in informal opportunities to do science.

I earned a PhD in Environmental Sciences from Oregon State University where my dissertation research explored how community and citizen science programs contribute to the science identity development and community cultivation of participants with a focus on the experiences of LGBTQ2SIA+ participants.

Currently I am also a postdoctoral scholar with the Center for Community and Citizen Science at the University of California, Davis leading a project on examining the role of community and citizen science in marine protected areas (MPAs).

My background is varied with education and experiences in marine sciences, environmental education, and teaching middle school through university-level science courses, and I also served three years as a community-based environmental management Peace Corps Volunteer in the coastal desert of Perú. Above all I am passionate about getting folks engaged with science through various media and opportunities, and exploring their relationships with science through teaching and research.
